Is it because his design for heroine for Legends 3 finished last place?

He did. He commented the other week about how he hated his job.

I dunno, I'm somewhat panicked over this.. It seems it was Keiji that really pulled for the production of DASH 3... Also, to my knowledge he had a pretty large part in the making of the originals no? I can't help but feel that my too-good-to-be-true dream sequel may be in jeopardy now...

There's a huge 6 page interview at 4Gamer which they conducted with Inafune last week (posted today) about his resignation. I'm not going to bother translating it because Anoop will probably have something on his blog later. He does address Megaman Legends 3 as well, saying that it took so long to assemble the staff and to get the project approved that he didn't want to quit at this point, but he just couldn't continue anymore because he really hates his job and doesn't feel any joy or drive anymore. :lol

Really though I think the straw that broke Infaune's back was his Megaman Legends 3 heroine placing last place. :lol

Yes, Capcom will completely change their approach to development and abandon the huge investment they just made in both DmC and Blue Castle Games, simply because one man left the company. Yup.

Nope.

Can you talk about the tone, though? Is there any indication that he's using rote business-speak, or does it seem sincere?
